Yes it is informative forum and I have over 2500 posts in support of it however informative also means exposing those who talk nonsense or pretend to be experts in areas they are not or simply put out misleading information.

As a way of adding something parallel to this interesting discussion, I received a quote today for inspection reports at each of the building stages, and it was fairly unsurprisingly mentioned that the cost of inspections depends on the amount of bathrooms, the size and complexity of the home.
For my double-storey 42 sq, 4 bed, 1 ensuite and 1 bath property the quote for all stages + final/reinspection is almost double what blackcat20 mentioned above, which is pretty logical when comparing the sizes of the projects.

Agree r_13 - the cost was more for us too. We are also building a 42sq home. It makes sense as there is more house to inspect! We ended up going with Houspect, as they were about $1,000 cheaper than Darbecca. These two companies had been recommended to me.
